[en] Geographic Profiling ; Crime attractors and generators ; Distance decay ; Raster analysis
[en] Geographic profiling is a methodology used to delineate a prior search area for a
serial offender. Two new hypotheses integrating recent researches on offender’s
behaviour are proposed to broaden the applicability of the techniques of
geographic profiling to commuters and irregular patterns of crimes. The journeysto-
crime variance and place attractiveness will be successively integrated in GP
methods. In order to evaluate the variance of the journeys-to-crime on real road
network, a method based on least square adjustment in raster mode is
developed. A real case of serial rapes illustrates the effectiveness of those
assumptions for a non-uniform pattern of crimes.
